Aspiring Brains uses methods crafted for midbrain activation to help children grow holistically. Benefits of midbrain activation include higher concentration, higher information retention, increased processing ability, improved energy and understanding, and ability to perceive situations, set goals, and map out the road towards success.
It is a known fact that only 1% to 2% of our brain is used for functioning. Research suggest that we barely understand the functioning of our brain. Apart from the communication through neurons, research is still going on regarding the functioning of the human brain.
Here are a few interesting facts regarding the human brain.
1. Lack of oxygen in the brain for 5 to 10 minutes reduces brain effectiveness.
2. New brain neurons are created every time you learn something new.One needs to have high number of active neurons.
3. In order to achieve success in any activity our thoughts should be as less as possible; in fact our mind should be working only the relevant thoughts. A human has about 70000 thoughts a day out of which about 70% are negative. Improved focus or concentration power helps in overcoming the negative thoughts.
4. There are 2 part of brain left and right by birth one of them is dominant. Brain balancing techniques helps in improving the brain balance.
5. Specific music frequencies triggers activity in the same part of the brain that releases dopamine hormone.This improves feel-good aspect, improves learning etc.
1. Brain effectiveness drops after 5-10 minutes of lack of oxygen
2. New neurons are created in the brain every time you learn something new, hence constant learning means more active neurons and a healthy brain
3. The human mind processes an average of 70000 thoughts a day. 70% of these are negative thoughts. It is necessary to be happy and concentrate only on the relevant thoughts
4. By birth, one of the lobes of the brain is dominant. Brain balancing helps to improve the balance and brings holistic growth to a person
5. Dopamine is the feel-good hormone. Specific music frequencies triggers the release of this hormone and boosts brain function.
How does the brain communicate? How is information transferred between the various sections of the brain? How does the brain communicate with the remaining body?
Through waves. To know more, read here.
Neurons are the building blocks of the brain. They communicate information using electrical charges. This exchange can be seen in the form of waves on an EEG (ElectroEncephaloGram)
These brain waves are measured in cycles per second (Hertz; Hz for short). Hence, the brain activity or strength is measured in frequency. The lower the number of Hz, the slower the frequency ergo slow brain activity.
In the 1930’s and 40’s, researchers identified several different types of brain waves.
These fall into 4 types:
1. Delta waves (below 4 Hz) occur during sleep
2. Theta waves (4-7 Hz) are associated with sleep, deep relaxation (like hypnotic relaxation), and visualization
3. Alpha waves (8-13 Hz) occur when we are relaxed and calm
4. Beta waves (13-38 Hz) occur when we are actively thinking, problem-solving, etc.
Post the original research, other forms of brainwaves have been identified and are categorized according to the traditional 4.
Some important brainwave additions:
Sensory Motor Rhythm (SMR; around 14 Hz) was discovered and helped prevent seizure activity in cats. SMR activity seems to function as a link brain between body functions.
Gamma brain waves (39-100 Hz) help in consolidation of information and higher mental activity. According to a study, advanced Tibetan meditators produce higher levels of gamma than non-meditators both before and during meditation.
ARE YOU WONDERING WHAT KIND OF BRAIN WAVES YOU PRODUCE?
The categories are for convenience, people however tend to speak as if they only produce one type of brain wave.
The categorization helps to describe the changes in the brain activity while performing different activities.
So, we don’t ever produce only “one” brain wave type.
Our overall brain activity is a mix of all the frequencies at the same time, some in greater quantities and strength than others.
The meaning of all this? Balance is the key. We don’t want to regularly produce too much or too little of any brainwave frequency.
HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THAT BALANCE?
Both flexibility and elasticity are necessary to achieve the optimum function.
Flexibility generally means that you can shift ideas and activities when needed or when something is not working.
Well, when talking about the brain it means the same thing.
We need to be able to change brain activities according to what we are doing. In the workplace, you need to concentrate and be careful, beta waves are good. However, when we want to go back home and relax, we can reduce beta and alpha activities. In order to get to sleep, I want to further slowdown.
So when we cannot shift to meet the needs of our lives, we are in trouble.
Even when we stuck in a certain pattern, we are in trouble. For example, after giving some damage to the brain (which may be physical or emotional), the brain attempts to stabilize itself and deliberately slows down.
However, if the brain is slow, if you are “bored” at a slow frequency, you may concentrate, it will be difficult to concentrate and think.
Resilience generally means the stability of bouncing back from a negative event and not “breaking into the wind”. Studies suggest that resilient people are healthier and happier than those who are not healthy. The same applies to the brain. The brain needs to be able to “bounce back” from all the unhealthy things we do with it (drinking, smoking, lack of sleep, and violence etc.)
When something goes wrong it is probably because our brain has no flexibility or elasticity.
So flexibility and elasticity are important goals for efficient and effective brain function.

The brain is made of three main parts: the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain. The forebrain consists of the cerebrum, thalamus, and hypothalamus (part of the limbic system).
The brain has two halves or hemispheres: right and left. The right hemisphere controls the left side of the body, and the left hemisphere controls the right side. In most people, the left hemisphere regulates language and speech, and the right hemisphere controls nonverbal, spatial skills. Each half of the brain is divided into main functional sections, called lobes. There are four lobes in each half of the brain: the Frontal Lobe, Temporal Lobe, Parietal Lobe, and Occipital Lobe. Other important sections of the brain are the Cerebellum and the Brain Stem. Although not usually divided into lobes, the cerebellum and brain stem both have different parts. Each of the brain hemispheres and lobes, cerebellum, and brain stem has specific functions, and they all work together
Frontal Lobe: most anterior, right under the forehead; the frontal lobe controls intellectual activities, such as the ability to organize, as well as personality, behavior, and emotional control.
Parietal Lobe: near the back and top of the head above the ears; the parietal lobe controls the ability to read, write, and understand spatial relationships.
Occipital Lobe: most posterior, at the back of the head; the occipital lobe controls sight.
Temporal Lobe: side of head above ears situated immediately behind and below the frontal lobes; the temporal lobe controls memory, speech and comprehension.
Brain Stem: lower part of brain, leads to spinal cord; the brain stem contains nerve fibers that carry signals to and from all parts of the body. The brain stem also regulates body functions such as consciousness, fatigue, heart rate, and blood pressure. Damage to the brain stem can cause loss of consciousness.
Cerebellum: located at the base of the skull; it is a curved mass of nerve tissues that regulates balance and coordinates fine motor skills; it enables us to move quickly and smoothly.
Grey and White Matter: The brain is made up of two types of tissue, grey matter and white matter. Grey matter is involved in analyzing information. White matter conducts information between grey matter areas. The ratio of grey to white matter changes over the lifespan.
What is memory?
Memory is a related area of the brain that stores information.
Memory is the ability of the mind where information is encoded, stored and retrieved.
Memory is essential to experience, it is related to the limbic system, to hold information with the passage of time in order to influence future behavior. If we were unable to recall the events of the past, we could not learn the language, human relations, personal identity, nor learn it.
In many cases, memory is understood as an information processing system with explicit and implicit functions composed of sensory processors.
The sensory processor senses information from the outside world in the form of chemical and physical stimuli and allows to follow different levels of focus and intention. Working memory functions as an encoding and retrieval processor. Information on the form of stimulus is encoded according to an explicit or implicit function by the working memory processor. The working memory also retrieves information from the previously stored material.
It is necessary to memorize things and knowledge without understanding and repeat it multiple times.
Long-term memory with strong concentration and understanding, almost no repetition, facts and knowledge gained.
Finally, the function of long-term memory is to store data via various category models and systems, such as specific images and events.
The memory of the left brain is language memory. Its nature is reasonable and logical. The memory of the right brain is the storage of photos. When you want to remember words and pictures, you can capture images of the brain that use a camera to take pictures. All content in the brain freeze like a map. Please be careful when we want to use images. Therefore, the photo memory of the right brain is also an image memory.
The Aspiring Brains program improves our memory and retention. ore information.
Memory is the faculty of the mind by which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved.
We can not learn or develop language, relationships, nor personal identity.
Often memory is understood as an informational processing system with explicit and implicit functioning that is made up of a sensory processor.
Information in the form of stimuli is attended in the form of stimulation and intent. Working memory serves as an encoding and retrieval processor. According to explicit or implicit functions by the working memory processor. The working memory also retrieving information from previously stored material.
Types of Memories:
Short memory the things or knowledge memorized without understanding and repeated multiple repetitions.
Long-term memory the things or knowledge gained through strong concentration and understanding and almost no repetitions.
Finally, the function of long-term memory is to store data through various categorical models or systems such as specific images or events.
Left brain memory is the memory of the memory, when you want to remember words or pictures, it can intake of brain images like we use the camera to take photo, all the Therefore, the photographic memory in the right brain is also images memory.

Your brain consists of billions of brain cells called neurons, and your neurons (and the rest of the body) use electricity to communicate with each other. As you can imagine, these millions of once-sent neurons generate a large amount of electrical activity in your brain, which can actually be done like an EEG that measures cross-regional levels Medical equipment to detect.
When EEG is used to characterize the brain’s electrical activity, you create a so-called brainwave pattern called a “waveform,” due to its periodic, wavy nature.
EEG patterns are generally classified as follows:
Most of us live in most of our lives in a state of beta brainwave – excited, alert, focused but somewhat stressed.
If we lower the frequency of brain waves to α, then we can put ourselves in an ideal state, learn new information, perform more complex tasks, learn languages, analyze complex situations, and even in sport, psychologists The “zone” improves the conditions of attention and performance in a sporting event or a sporting event. This is partly due to a slight decrease in electrical activity in the brain that may lead to a significant increase in healthy brain chemicals such as endorphins, norepinephrine and dopamine.
For example, when you meditate, you focus on something, whether it is a candle flame or breathing or exhaling, or mantra or praying. As you concentrate, the electronic pattern in the brain becomes slow and relaxed, and the amplitude of the brain waves is usually stable in the alpha wave range.
But it turns out that you do not have to be a well-trained monk or meditation for a few weeks in order to achieve this state of alpha brain wave relaxation.
Instead, you can use the concept called brainwashing to achieve the same effect.
The type of audio commonly used when using brain waves is called “binaural” beats. The way they work is that two closely spaced tones produce beats at frequency differences.
The aspiring brain has developed an improvement program that we are working to achieve for these health treatments.
The human brain functions more powerful than a supercomputer. But then, why aren’t we all intelligent? Why can’t we process complex functionalities like a supercomputer?
Well, intelligence and the brain have a unique and magnificent relationship. To know more, keep reading.
The human brain is the most powerful supercomputer on the planet. In order to explore the relationship between human intelligence and the brain, it is necessary to carefully consider the structure of human intelligence. Brain information can be defined as general mental abilities for reasoning, problem solving, learning. Because of its general nature, intelligence integrates cognitive functions such as perception, attention, memory, language, or planning. Based on this definition, intelligence can be reliably measured by standardized tests with scores predicting extensive social outcomes such as educational outcomes, job performance, health, and longevity.
A detailed understanding of the mechanisms of the brain underlying this general mental capacity can have significant benefits for individuals and society. Structural and functional neuroimaging studies have generally supported an anterior wall network associated with intelligence. This same network has also been found to be the foundation of cognitive functions related to perception, short-term memory memory and language. The distributed nature of this network and its involvement in a wide range of cognitive functions are suitable for the integrated nature of intelligence. At the new major research stage we are beginning to investigate how functional networks are involved in structured networks and emphasize how distributed areas of the brain communicate with each other. Our intelligence depends on the development of the brain structure. Aspiring Brains helps improve the brain’s communication system, increase intelligence and achieve the best results in all walks.
Academic and commercial researchers are aiming to understand more deeply how humans behave, make decisions, plan and remember. Progress in wearable sensor technology and procedures for acquisition and analysis of multimodal data makes it possible for scientists around the world to take advantage of the human brain and mind secrets that were previously unknown.
Still, as Makeig et al. (2009) emphasizes, the most important task is to systematically observe how the distributed brain process supports natural, active and flexible changing behaviors and cognition And to interpret it.
We are all active agents, satisfying physical needs and spiritual desires in a complex and constantly changing environment and we continue to interact with the environment. The brain structure that supports the cognitive process aimed at optimizing the result of behavior based on our body evolved.
In scientific research, human behavior is a complex interplay of three components: actions, cognitions and emotions.
An action denotes everything that can be observed, either with bare eyes or measured by physiological sensors. Think of an action as an initiation or transition from one state to another – at a movie set, the director shouts “action” for the next scene to be filmed.
Behavioral actions can take place on various time scales, ranging from muscular activation to sweat gland activity, food consumption, or sleep.
Cognition and behavior
Cognition expresses thoughts and spiritual imagery you have and it will be both verbal and non-linguistic. It can be thought of as words perception that “I should never forget to buy groceries”, or “It is strange to know her idea.” In contrast, imagining what your house looks like after renovation can be viewed as nonverbal perception.
Cognition consists of skills and knowledge. I know how to use the tool in a meaningful way (without hurting yourself), how to sing karaoke songs, or how to memorize the color of Marty McFee’s jacket of “Back to the Future”.
Emotions are actions
Generally, emotion is a relatively simple conscious experience characterized by intense mental activity and emotions not characterized as a result of reasoning or knowledge. It usually exists on a scale from positive (pleasure) to negative (unpleasant).
Other aspects of physiology that are indicative of emotional treatment (e.g., increased heart rate or respiratory rate caused by increased arousal) are usually hidden in the eye. As with cognition, you cannot directly observe feelings. They track facial electromyogram activity (EMG), analyze facial expressions, monitor arousal using ECG, indirectly analyze skin electrical response (GSR), respiration sensor, or self-reported measures It is only possible to guess.
Emotions allow us to react to the situation. For example, anger and fear set the race of your heart and happiness makes you smile. One of the major areas of the brain that deals with recognizing and controlling the body response to emotion is called the limbic system. Emotion center is the oldest part of the human brain.
Why is your mood important? Genevieve Rayner, Flory Institute Neuroscience and Mental Health Laboratory “Someone awoke to get in the way of the bed this morning and in rare cases you feel more elegant toward the world (or who is saying it) At other times, you may feel that it is particularly elegant and sunny There is no reason, our mood affects how we think and see the world It is a temporary frame of mind, it is influenced by events occurring in our lives, the amount of sleep we receive, hormones and even the weather, but in order to shape our mood, the brain What role does it play?
Many areas that are the basis of mood are deeply buried in the most primitive part of the brain. In other words, they are considered to have developed first in human species. Moods are considered to be important in evolutionary terms.
Muds are advantageous, for example, it has been shown that sharpening our eyes is about details. However, as a whole, the brain seems to be maintaining a mild positive attitude. If you feel good, we can search for new experiences, live in creative, planning and changing conditions.
The limbic system is a network of major brains that support mood. It is a network of areas that work together to process and mean the world.
Has there ever been a time when you swear that you know about certain things and events that will happen, although you cannot describe how you come to know it? While you might call this as your ‘gut feeling,’ this sense – known as intuition – does not necessarily arise from your stomach. Below you can learn more your unexplainable instinct – and how your brain gives you the sense of ‘doing what you need to do.’
What is intuition?
It is also known as feeling and intestinal sensation, but it is defined as a convincing, sudden emotion that individual origin cannot explain. It comes from the Latin “intuit” and means knowledge from the inside. You may consider it to be brought about by internal forces, but the sense of your bowel actually begins with the recognition of external factors, in fact the intonation and expression are very short.
Brain and intuition
Intuition is not like human imagination, literally comes from the human intestine? It is the result of activities within different brain regions. Generally speaking, the area that opens the way of intuition is the right hemisphere. It is not only dominating creative thinking, art, music, sensation, emotion but also an area where intuitive thinking is created. The cerebral cortex (also known as cerebellum) also affects the development of human lunch.
Scientists responsible for decision making, creativity and cognitive logic believe that it plays a role in the brain. A more specific area of the brain that is thought to dominate an intuitive judgment intuition is the ventral prefrontal cortex memorizing information on past remuneration and punishment. The discovery of the role of the vestibular frontal cortex in intuition was consolidated by a study conducted by a neuroscientist at the University of Iowa, Antonio Damasio. Due to differences in thinking and decision-making strategies by normal individuals and those who have damaged said parts of the brain, the result is that the ventral prefrontal cortex can elicit emotional reactions that people regard as intestinal feelings or lunch. Acne, one minute’s nucleus located in Pawson, is said to produce intestinal sensation as well. As a seat for noradrenaline supply to the forebrain, it is one of the structures to build “rising reticulated activation system”. The role of intuition is known to play a major role because of its ability to affect emotions, motivation, memory, learning, decision making.
Practice leads to perfection
Some psychologists feel their instincts magically, but there is an intuitive explanation. In most cases, I will look at intuition as a condensed inference or quick cognition which is the ability of a person using a brain shortcut. On the other hand, some people think of intestinal sensation as an unionized process unconsciously connected. With many of these explanations, many experts agree that the best way to explain intuition is to metaphor it to spiritual match games. The brain presenting the situation easily searches the existing file and presents the optimal solution for the state at hand. For example, a physician immediately identifies an anemia of a thin looking patient who exhibits signs of dyspnea.
Practice becomes perfect
In wit, intuition is domain specific abilities. In other words, it has good emotions in one domain and insufficient insight for another domain. Just like any force in mind, intuition gets better with practice. After all, intestinal sensation is about the power of the brain seeing regular events and patterns. The more you are accustomed to a specific domain, the faster the brain handles the heuristic solution for certain situations.
Intuition and Malcolm Gladwell’s blink
Several experts believe that eyes should not make a decision in the blink of an eye, but the author Malcolm Gladwell fully supports intuition through a best-selling book titled “Blink” . Gladwell talks about a statue of Greece called “Kouros”. Although scientific tests prove to be authentic, it turned out that the evil feelings of Greek archaeologists, directors of old museums and art historians were not. Their intuition was not wrong. In further testing of the $ 10 million work, it proved to be a false artifact.
Given this situation, Gladwell creates his case of intuition. He also calls it rapid dementia. In his book, he gathers behind the instinct and bad feelings and judgment power and effect. His research concluded that intuition based decisions are better than decisions relying on rational analysis. He emphasized that too much thinking could lead to a wrong decision.
Although Gladwell demonstrates several strengths, some experts think that it is wrong for him to seek intuitive decision-making rather than reasonable and reasonable decision-making. The former makes choices without wasting time and effort, but it does not mean there are no pitfalls. After all, psychologists and Nobel laureate Daniel Kaneman may lead to wrong movements.
When following your intuition
Gladwell believes intuitive decision making is better, as suggested in his book “Blink”, but there are only as many times as he has chosen to listen to your hobby. These scenarios are as follows.
Intuition is one of the brain’s ways to help you make decisions when you have spent most of your time, especially in scenarios and scenarios. Your gut feelings may be correct, but it is always safe to rationally think before making a huge decision.
